About
As you begin the Roguey Walk Experience, you will arrive at the stunning Fairy Bridges – sea stacks thousands of years old, and and a star attraction of the Wild Atlantic Way Coastline. With scenic views for 360 degrees you can see back to Mullaghmore, County Sligo and across Donegal Bay to the magical Slieve League Cliffs. This is the playground of the legendary Little Folk, which coupled with the spectacular formations spanning the edge of the roaring ocean, prompted the local name “The Fairy Bridges”. While you’re there, take a seat on Bundoran’s own Wishing Chair. It is said that many of the town’s famous visitors over the years have sat here overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean – from poet William Allingham to golfer Christy O’Connor Jr to Viscount Enniskillen to 10 times world champion surfer Kelly Slater – they’re all believed to have sat in Bundoran’s famous Wishing Chair located at the Fairy Bridges at Tullan Strand. Sit, make your wish, relax & enjoy your time in Bundoran.

Stunning views

This is a lovely stop off on the Tullan Strand coastal walk, not enough to organise a whole trip over though.

Stunning Views
Oct 2020 • Couples
Stopped of here on our way home from a short break. The views of the sand dunes sandy beach and tumbling waves spread out below you is absolutely stunning! Just along a short path you will find the fairy bridges which is a large blow hole (collapsed sea cave) where not only can you can see the waves crashing beneath you but you can walk the whole way round it. The lovely tail of the fairies who live there and the opportunity to sit on the fairy throne and make a wish which will come true iff the follow the ritual is just lovely. Beautiful spot and not to be missed when in the area

Underwhelming
Sep 2020 • Family
After reading reviews we made it top of our to do list but it's not what we were expecting, we thought it was a bit of a fairy trail which would be exciting for the kids but they didn't get the hype.. Nice was along the beach after it and a lovely picnic in the sun

Interesting water erosion

Just nice part of the walk along the Roughey. Wouldn’t go out of way to go explicitly to see them. Just part of the cliff walk.
